        The Day's Play

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1911. Octavo. Original red cloth, title and decorations to spine and front cover gilt. Spine faded, marks and rubbing to front cover. A very good copy. Third edition (a year after the first), inscribed by the author to his future wife, Dorothy de Sélincourt, on the occasion of their engagement, on the front free endpaper, "To my Dorothy — with the author's heart. January 23rd, 1913". With Dorothy's illustrated bookplate to the front pastedown. The two first met in January 1913 while buying ski boots — coincidentally they were headed for the same slopes in Switzerland, Diablerets, and were both staying at the same hotel, the Grand. After a brief courtship, they announced their engagement that same month, and were married six months later. This copy is one of two books that Milne presented to Dorothy on the day he returned to London from Switzerland, the other being a copy of The Holiday Round. This work is the first of Milne's four volumes containing a collection of his contributions to Punch. The book was well-received, and was in its third edition just four months after publication, and in its fourth when his second collection, The Holiday Round, was published the following year.

        ECCE MUNDUS -- INDUSTRIAL IDEALS AND THE BOOK BEAUTIFUL

      Pagination: unpaginated [38 pp.] which were beautifully printed at the Chiswick Press on fine paper. Of course, the special feature of this copy is that it was also bound at Cobden-Sanderson's DOVES BINDERY.Arts & Crafts designed bookplate of Ernst Beeckman with the inscription on the front flyleaf: "For Mr. and Mrs. Beckman. June 1911" (in an unknown hand). This binding may be related to catalogue entry 582 in Marianne Tidcombe's THE DOVES BINDERY, which mentions two copies of pattern numbered 742, and being bound as "the covers are tooled with a small corner design of rose leaves," but we are unsure this fully relates to our copy so therefore inconclusive.

        Oliver Wendell Holmes Signed Harvard University Commencement Speech.

      1911. Speech delivered by "Mr. Justice Holmes at Commencement, Harvard University, June 28, 1911," fifty years after he graduated from the university, three pages on two adjoining sheets. Inscribed by the author, "Mrs. Bradley, from O. W. Holmes, July 8, 1911." The speech, in part states, "Life is a roar of bargain and battle, but in the very heart of it there rises a mystic spiritual tone that gives meaning to the whole. It transmutes the dull details into romance. It reminds us that our only but wholly adequate significance is as parts of the unimaginable whole. It suggests that even while we think that we are egoists we are living to ends outside ourselves." In his own hand, Holmes adds the word "that" to the final sentence. Rare and desirable. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age 90, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus.

        Peter and Wendy

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1911 - First American Edition, first issue (simultaneous with the London Harrap edition). The true first is distinguished by three points: 1. Scribner's seal, 2."Published October, 1911" to copyright page and 3. A "$1.50 net" price to the jacket's front cover (later issues priced at $2.50 on the front flap). A fine copy with Peter, Mermaids & the Click-Tock Crocodile to the front and Captain Hook to the spine. First issue jacket repeats the binding images and adds the price. Later editions (though still copyrighted 1911) lack the oddly-placed price to the front of the jacket. Jacket frayed along top with not entirely successful archival repairs from long ago. Book itself is as new: tight hinges and gutters; no owners' names, no bookplates, no sunning nor wear; gilt is bright & clean. "Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860 - 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, the child of a family of small-town weavers, and best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. He was educated in Scotland but moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him to write about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. Peter Pan quickly overshadowed his previous work [and was] credited with popularizing the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, which continues to benefit from them." Wikipedia 2016; 8vo ; [ix], 267 pages

        Peter and Wendy

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1911. Illustrated by F. D. Bedford. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and front cover in gilt, fore edge untrimmed, others trimmed. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece with tissue-guard, pictorial title page, and 11 plates, all by Bedford. Spine gently rolled, very slight rubbing to extremities, top edge lightly dust toned; a very good copy in the jacket with expert restoration to head of spine, panels a little soiled, nicks to extremities, minor loss to fold of rear flap and to head of spine and rear panel, short closed tear to head of front panel. First US edition, first printing, with Scribner's seal and "Published October, 1911" to copyright page, and "$1.50 Net" to the front panel of the dust jacket.. Peter and Wendy is an expanded adaptation into novel form of the story first made popular in the 1904 stage play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. It tells the familiar story of the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and his pirates, but Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, when she is grown with a child of her own. The stage play itself was not published until 1928. Originally published in the same year in the UK.

        [Photographs]: World War I African-American Sailor from Philadelphia

      [Mostly 1911-1918]. A collection of 108 photographs, mostly taken by Walter Timothy, Jr., an African-American sailor from Philadelphia. 96 of the images are on shipboard or related, while 12 are (mostly older) images of the Timothy family, also two post cards, commercially printed (but which help provide the identification of Timothy).. Various sizes, most are around 3.5" x 3.5", a fair number are real photo postcards. Some overall fading, a few with small ink splashes or creases, most are near very good, with a few better or worse. A majority are briefly but clearly captioned on the verso, a few on the margins or edges of the images.Service records indicate that Walter Timothy, Jr. enlisted in the Navy in 1911 and served throughout the duration of World War I on convoy ships and escorts. He also later served in WWII. The vast majority of the Naval images represented here (and likely all of them) were taken during the War, and depict a number of topics that would indicate that fact, including a destroyer standing by a disabled hydroplane floating nose down in the ocean, pictures of depth charge explosions trying to sink subs, several of dirigibles and "captive" observation balloons tethered over the ship, several of troop convoys in formation, divers going down in harbors looking for mines, survivors from a French fishing boat sunk by a U-boat. Also included are a few images of ship pets including cats (one walking along the barrel of the aft-gun), a dog, a goat mascot, airing bedding on deck, an image of a collision at sea between two U.S. ships, one odd image of what looks like a German soldier attempting to bayonet a French fisherman (certainly staged, as the next image shows them laughing together), a barber giving a haircut on the deck, many images of big guns and mines on deck in racks, a few in the engine room of ships both American and British.Many are of Timothy's shipmates, almost all of them white (including one curious fellow, "Monkey Baldwin" who in a couple of images was kept on a leash and acted like a chimpanzee), another of all-bald shipmates. Only one image shows a group of black shipmates, perhaps stewards. The jovial nature on board would suggest that Timothy was on good terms with most of his white shipmates.The family images, mostly with Philadelphia photographers marks are mostly of females, several captioned, although one identifies Walter (in dress and with long hair) as a 16-month old toddler. Census records indicate that after the war Walter went to work for the U.S. Postal Service. Despite the fading that impacts the aesthetic quality of some of the images, still an easily viewable and a fascinating collection of images depicting the course of service of a black sailor during the World War I, and very uncommon thus. .

        Helen of Troy and Other Poems

      New York and London: The Knickerbocker Press for G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1911. 8vo. 115pp. Original cloth-backed boards, matching lettered spine panel. Inscribed with a poem. The poet has signed and dated the copy 1912 at top, and she inscribes it with an 8-line poem for "Mr. Gomme" on the front free endpaper: "I wonder, shall I add thereto, / Or let the name stand all alone? / What is the proper thing to do, / I wonder? Shall I add thereto? / I've autographed so very few -- / If I am wrong, let this atone; / I wonder shall I add thereto, / Or let the name stand all alone? / S.T. for Mr. Gomme."

        Loose Photographs]: Early 20th Century Images of Mexico

      1911 - 32 loose glossy albumen photographs of Mexico. Each is 7" x 5", and nearly all are contemporarily well-captioned in English on the versos. Undated but circa 1909-1911. Small nick in the margin of one picture, a few flaws visible from the negatives, and some scattered sunning, else very near fine. Presumably the work of an American tourist, the images depict many scenes of small towns, rustic roads and the countryside, peasants working, a train scene, a line of burros, one image shows a woman doing laundry next to a wicker birdcage, and in the company of the family pig. There are additional images of cities, including the Flower Fiesta in Mexico City, monuments and various haciendas, and two of Abraham Gonzalez, the Governor of Chihuahua and political mentor of Pancho Villa, in the driver's seat of an early automobile. He was murdered by supporters of the dictator Victoriano Huerta in 1913. Nice, well-documented images.

A collection of 108 photographs, mostly taken by Walter Timothy, Jr., an African-American sailor from Philadelphia. 96 of the images are on shipboard or related, while 12 are (mostly older) images of the Timothy family, also two post cards, commercially printed (but which help provide the identification of Timothy).. Various sizes, most are around 3.5" x 3.5", a fair number are real photo postcards. Some overall fading, a few with small ink splashes or creases, most are near very good, with a few better or worse. A majority are briefly but clearly captioned on the verso, a few on the margins or edges of the images.Service records indicate that Walter Timothy, Jr. enlisted in the Navy in 1911 and served throughout the duration of World War I on convoy ships and escorts. He also later served in WWII. The vast majority of the Naval images represented here (and likely all of them) were taken during the War, and depict a number of topics that would indicate that fact, including a destroyer standing by a disabled hydroplane floating nose down in the ocean, pictures of depth charge explosions trying to sink subs, several of dirigibles and "captive" observation balloons tethered over the ship, several of troop convoys in formation, divers going down in harbors looking for mines, survivors from a French fishing boat sunk by a U-boat. Also included are a few images of ship pets including cats (one walking along the barrel of the aft-gun), a dog, a goat mascot, airing bedding on deck, an image of a collision at sea between two U.S. ships, one odd image of what looks like a German soldier attempting to bayonet a French fisherman (certainly staged, as the next image shows them laughing together), a barber giving a haircut on the deck, many images of big guns and mines on deck in racks, a few in the engine room of ships both American and British.Many are of Timothy's shipmates, almost all of them white (including one curious fellow, "Monkey Baldwin" who in a couple of images was kept on a leash and acted like a chimpanzee), another of all-bald shipmates. Only one image shows a group of black shipmates, perhaps stewards. The jovial nature on board would suggest that Timothy was on good terms with most of his white shipmates.The family images, mostly with Philadelphia photographers marks are mostly of females, several captioned, although one identifies Walter (in dress and with long hair) as a 16-month old toddler. Census records indicate that after the war Walter went to work for the U.S. Postal Service. Despite the fading that impacts the aesthetic quality of some of the images, still an easily viewable and a fascinating collection of images depicting the course of service of a black sailor during the World War I, and very uncommon thus. .

The following pages are generally illustrated with photographs, postcards, small drawings, etc and cover house parties ay Prideaux Place [sometimes with details of the shooting bag [on one occasion in Oct 1909 554 pheasants].

        Time Table of Special Train conveying Her Imperial Majesty the Queen-Empress from Delhi to Agra Over the Great Indian Peninsula Railway. 16th December 1911.

      - [Delhi?, 1911]. Small 8vo. Original cord-bound handmade stiff paper wrappers, front cover lettered in gilt, gilt-stamped coat-of-arms; ff. [2], printed in purple within gilt single-fillet frame, 15 plates after photographs within sage-green frames, final blank; wrappers a little dusted, internally, apart from very light spotting to title, near fine. This is a rare and finely produced survival from the 1911 Delhi Durbar, the most splendid manifestation of Imperial power in India, when King George V and Queen Mary were publicly proclaimed Emperor and Empress of India, and, without warning, India's capital was moved from Calcutta to Delhi. This Time Table was probably only handed out to the Royal couple and a few court, state and railway officials, involved in organizing the smooth running of the train from Delhi Selimgarh (departure 1:10 PM) to Agra Cantt (arrival at 5PM). The plates depict the architectural landmarks along the line. The only other copy we were able to locate is in the Royal Collection. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Peter and Wendy is an expanded adaptation into novel form of the story first made popular in the 1904 stage play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. It tells the familiar story of the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and his pirates, but Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, when she is grown with a child of her own. The stage play itself was not published until 1928. Originally published in the same year in the UK. [Attributes: First Edition]
